Scottish Affairs Committee
Scottish Affairs Committee holds a session on the demography of Scotland and the implications for devolution, dates and times to be announced.
After several years of decline, Scotland’s population is now growing, albeit at a much slower rate than in England, and like the populations of most developed countries, it is also ageing. These demographic trends present challenges and opportunities to both the UK and Scottish Governments and they will affect a diverse range of policy areas including health, housing, transport, welfare and the economy.
In this inquiry the Committee will examine what the current predictions are and who is responsible for responding to them. Additionally, in light of the decision to devolve further powers to Scotland, we will ask if there is effective joint working between governments on these issues.
No evidence has been published by the Committee yet.
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
